Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2595418A1] A method and apparatus for providing an alert on a portable communication device such as a user equipment (UE) entering an alerting area is provided. The UE runs a GPS engine continuously to estimate the location of the UE from the time the alert system is activated. The method and apparatus provide an alert system on a UE by calculating the distance between the UE and alerting area. Further, the method and apparatus enable using different positioning systems based on the distance of the UE from the alerting area, thereby reducing the power consumption of the UE battery.
